There was a time in my life when I became aware of a lack of purpose and lack of direction.
Although I came from a poor family, I joined the Air Force and things were going well for me…But I had a growing feeling something was missing.
When I was in the first grade, I went to Vacation Bible School. There, we learned the ABC’s of becoming a Christian. A = ADMIT, B = BELIEVE, C = CONFESS
Before I accepted Christ, my life was a living wreck from which there was no escape.
My life before Christ was just ordinary…It was all just ordinary, nothing to live for, no joy, or to look forward to.
It was there that I came to realize that Jesus wanted to be more than my Savior – He wanted to be my Lord.
Then I realized what was missing — I didn’t know Jesus personally. I knew of him, but I didn’t KNOW him.
I knew all the stories and right answers, but I didn’t truly understand what all of it meant…
I was raised in a Christian home so all of my life I knew who Jesus was and what He did for me.
I grew up not doing bad things and was pretty respectful to others. I didn’t really give much thought to church, although I did believe in God.
